William Carlos Williams and Ken Kesey (& Jerry Garcia)



Two birthdays of note today: William Carlos Williams and Ken Kesey. Here's the Doctor:



-----------------------------------------------------------


The Thing
Each time it rings
I think it is for
me but it is
not for me nor for

anyone it merely
rings and we
serve it bitterly
together, they and I.
William Carlos Williams


-----------------------------------------------------------


And, Mr Kesey:






So, if that thing isn't a telephone, oh, whatever might it be?

Back to you, Ken.


Until tomorrow,

Don
